Llandrindod Wells & The Heart of Wales

Llandrindod Wells & The Heart of Wales





5 DAYS FROM £365


The rich rolling green landscapes of Powys and the unspoilt Ceredigion coastline make mid Wales an ideal holiday destination. Our tour is based in Llandrindod Wells which developed as a spa town resort in the 19th century due to the ‘healing qualities’ of the local spring waters. Indeed, canopied streets, delicate wrought ironwork, gabled villas and ornamental parklands still adorn the town today.


Our base in Llandrindod is the superb METROPOLE HOTEL & SPA which is ideally located in the centre of the town. Dating from 1896, the hotel features traditional spacious lounges in which to relax, a contemporary bar/brasserie and award winning restaurant with AA rosette. The Rock Spa has an 18 metre swimming pool, thermal suites, jacuzzi and fully equipped gymnasium and is complimentary for hotel guests. All of the well appointed en suite bedrooms have tv, telephone, trouser press,

hairdryer and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.
